Fiddleback University - Knife Making Classes

Handmade Knives

Fiddleback Forge’s knives are highly sought after by knife aficionados and avid outdoorsmen alike. The purely hand-crafted knives are especially desirable since they are designed for hard use with fantastic ergonomics and feature beautiful materials. Each unique knife is made by hand at the Fiddleback Forge shop. Master knife-maker and designer, Andy Roy, finishes each knife personally to make sure you are getting the highest quality knife imaginable.

Fiddleback Forge’s handcrafted knives have limited availability, and are sold as they are made. We do not take custom orders!

We release new knives every week over on the Fiddleback Friday page.

In person classes are taught by Andy Roy of Fiddleback Forge. Well into his second decade as a professional and prolific knife maker, Andy has made (and SOLD) tens of thousands of knives over his career.

Andy Roy has a long list of former apprentices that are now professional knife makers with their own established brands. Andy not only understands how to systematize the process of knife making, but how to teach those streamlined processes to others.

Fiddleback's first designs were the first 2 Fiddlebacks that I purchased (and still have)...they are the 3 Finger Joe in Ironwood and the Runt in Rosewood. That started my collection and I’ve owned over 60 Fiddleback and family knives - and still expanding! I no longer purchase any other family/brand of knives and rarely carry any of my pre-Fiddleback knives. I used to collect a lot of tactical folders and high end factory knives but I am much happier with the support, look, feel, and more personal approach by far with your organization. This probably mirrors the sentiment of the majority of us who have been regulars on the sub-forum and Fiddleback owners. Thank you so much for all of what you guys do.

I know most people buy a knife and hardly use it. I am not that guy. I gut, skin, bone out and process over 100 large game animals a year and spend 45 days a year in the woods in a tent. I have a bushcraft knife and a machete. No amount of money can buy these two knives from me. I'll hand them to a grandson I don't yet have. I have met few that use a knife like I do and fiddleback is my choice. And I have tried nearly all big name knife companies. Andy Roy is second to no knife builder I know.

Love Fiddleback Forge, awesome knives! The handle design is one of the best I have ever held & the fit & finish is second to none.
